Indigo and white, the countryside colors of old Japan are the inspiration for this unique collection of textiles based on traditional Japanese kasuri. The coordinating patterns call to mind an almost forgotten way of life rooted in deep reverence for the natural world and the appreciation of ordinary things.
The Zippered Ikat Zafu (pron. zah'-foo) is designed for meditation or floor sitting. It is made of our exclusive, handwoven 100% cotton ikat fabric. We stuff the Ikat Zafu with approximately 4 1/2 lbs. of buckwheat hulls enclosed in a zippered muslin shell making it easy to add or remove buckwheat.
The buckwheat filled Zafu Cushion is our bestselling product. While providing all the support of a traditional kapok-filled zafu, the Buckwheat Hull Zafu conforms more readily to each individual's shape and is somewhat softer. It feels like sitting on sand at the beach — the hulls move to where you want them allowing you to sit in a comfortable upright posture.
